Leprosy: Treatment and Prevention

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
Leprosy: Treatment and Prevention

Mentioned throughout history as a curse, leprosy was considered as a punishment of sins by many cultures as it was widespread and common. However, modern science demystified it and de-stigmatized it to the point where the occurrence of leprosy within the population has gone down to very low levels, although it is still prevalent among certain populations.

Prevention of leprosy: Leprosy is caused by the bacterial infection of Mycobacterium leprae and it is classified into multiple types. Leprosy is communicable through contact with common objects or a person by infected droplets within their nose. It primarily affects mucous membranes and the skin and the nerves on the hands, feet, and in extreme cases may cause disfigurement as well. There are no specific ways to prevent leprosy as no specific correlation between transmission and development has been found so far. Leprosy can happen through one time contact or through contact over extended period of time within the same household. Thus preventive measures will primarily include the following:

  1. Regular checkups by going to the doctor
  2. Ensuring that surfaces are kept clean if you share a household with a leprosy patient
  3. Skin biopsies at regular intervals just to check if you may have contracted the bacteria
  4. If a rash has developed, then it is urgent that you visit the doctor. Earlier the leprosy is detected, quickly it can treated and resolved

Incidences of leprosy have reduced over the last few decades due to improvements in medicine and early detection. This has allowed people to nip the problem in the bud and does not allow it to spread within their bodies or to other people.

Treatment of leprosy: The primary weapon that modern medicine has against leprosy is known as MDT or multidrug therapy. Multidrug therapy is the combination of multiple drugs, which attack the various aspects of leprosy, such as skin problems, nerve damage, loss of sensation, deterioration of skin conditions etc. This is the proven way to not only reduce symptoms, but also cure the problems in the long run.

Some of the drugs in the MDT used are as follows:

  1. Rifampicin and dapsone
  2. Rifampicin and clofazimine and dapsone
  3. Rifampicin, minocycline and ofloxacin

However, the combination will depend on the type of leprosy the person is affected with, such as paucibacillary leprosy or multibacillary leprosy and thus can only be prescribed by the doctor after thorough and detailed examination.

Hello doctors, Which days are safer for sex with wife without any safety materials.?

PG Diploma in YOGA, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Ghaziabad
Dear , safe period is calculated on the basis of cycle duration. Day 1 is first day of the period start. If monthly cycle is regular each month and of 28 days, then day 9 to 18 is unsafe for sex. Other days are usually safe for sex. For extra protection leave 2 more days both side so day 7-20 is unsafe. On the basis of cycle days there are variation of some days. Thanks.

Menstrual irregularities among women

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
IVF Specialist, Delhi
Menstrual irregularities among women

Some kind of menstrual irregularity, often accompanied by pain in lower abdomen is one of the most common presenting complaints about a gynecologist.

An irregular period is generally a symptom of some hormonal imbalance (estrogen and progesterone) in the body and is commonly encountered in young girls at the time of menarche ( a time when a girl starts to have the menstrual cycle) and around menopause. Menstrual irregularity can also be seen immediately after childbirth or after removal of intrauterine contraceptive device (iucd). Other common causes include thyroid gland dysfunctions, the presence of fibroids or polyps inside the uterus and excessive stress, including examination stress.

It is important to know a few more important details in order to evaluate and understand the same and make any recommendations. These include-

  • Duration of menstrual irregularity
  • Kind of irregularity- the interval between two cycles, amount of blood flow and no of days of flow.
  • Any associated pain in lower abdomen.
  • Associated weight gain, a growth of excessive facial hair or discharge from nipples.



Early assessment of menstrual disorders also requires an ultrasound scan of the lower abdomen to assess the condition of uterus and ovaries, specifically to rule out polycystic ovaries, and estimation of following hormone levels in the body - tsh, fsh, lh, prolactin and testosterone. These blood tests should be done on the second or third day of the periods.

The women experiencing menstrual irregularities should try and manage their weight so as to maintain a bmi of less than 25 kg/m2.

A healthy lifestyle including intake of a balanced diet, moderate exercise and avoiding any stress are very useful simple steps every woman can take on their own. In cases with severe irregularity, the woman may be required to get rid of the iucd, start a birth control pill to regulate the sex hormone levels during cycle and treatment for thyroid dysfunctions, if required.

You can consult with me for more information or treatment for menstrual disorders.

Is there any chance of pregnancy if sex done without protection during menstruation?

No chance of pregnancy...... Bcoz during menstruation..... Usually... It's follicular phase..... During this phase ovulation doesn't occur.... So pregnancy chance are very less..... But better to use protection...... As no one can assure for 100%.....

My wife is unable to conceive. Her period delayed every time. Every time her period comes in 2-3 months, and comes with the help of pills (regestrone). But this time we had decided not to take pills. So, her last period date was 23rd september 2016. After that period never happens. Now it has been five months. We have checked for pregnancy as well but result is negative.

And gone through several tests like hsg, tsh, prolactin etc. Please suggest.

Looks like she has some hormonal problem due to which she is Not able to produce hormones enough to make the lining of the uteurs. This means she is also not producing an egg (ovum) thats necessary for pregnancy. She needs expert infertility evaluation and you must upload her hormone tests to show the levels. Mostly she will be having PCOD, and may require fertility enhancing medicines to cause ovulation. Do NOT shirk away from medicines. Just making periods by taking a tablet is not good. The treatment must be aimed at making her have ovulation, which will automatically bring her either a period or make her pregnant. DO not do doctor shopping and visit numerous doctors. Find one good one and follow up with that gynecologist for a good 6 months while tests and other treatments are offered to her. If she is overweight, that could be a reason too which may hamper her ovulation and periods. If overweight losing weight is the simplest thing one can do to help oneself.

Know the protein content of the milk that you are consuming

Know the protein content of the milk that you are consuming
Cow's milk gives 3.2 gm protein and 4.4 gm fat per 100 ml.
Buffalo milk gives 4.3 gm protein and 6.6 gm fat per 100 ml.

So in case you are a vegetarian, you can continue with the buffalo milk, but make sure you are removing the cream thoroughly twice and then only consuming it.

I am having infection in groin area from last 6 months. It spread wide fastly. Can you help me about this?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your description is very vague and scanty so it is difficult to give exact advise. However, the common cause of infection in groin are is fungal origin. Which tends to cause severe itching plus maculo-papular lesions. These will also spread to surrounding area. You may have to use systemic antifungal drugs as well as local applications. Thanks.
